Bringing the Human to the Artificial, a new exhibition presented by the King’s Institute for Artificial Intelligence, showcases cutting-edge research from across the university exploring the effects of artificial intelligence (AI) on different aspects of our lives.
Presented in collaboration with King’s Culture, the exhibition runs from 2 May to 30 June at the Arcade, Bush House. It will showcase emerging applications for AI that shape our everyday lives. Research featured in the exhibition will include work exploring possibilities for the use of AI in the NHS and the justice system, driverless cars, facial recognition, national intelligence and security, and the creative industries.
As well as providing an introduction to AI and the range of technologies that underpin AI applications, Bringing the Human to the Artificial will present the future potential of augmented intelligence: for machines to work inextricably with humans, to support them, to interact with them, and to relate to them.
Featuring work from a range of disciplines and from different perspectives across King’s – including social sciences, law, arts, humanities, security, science, engineering and health – the exhibition encourages visitors to consider a society enriched by these technologies but also the concerns and challenges they inevitably present.
Bringing the Human to the Artificial will reflect a rich portfolio of current and emerging work in the field of AI research at King’s. Visitors to the exhibition can find out about AI applications that are improving healthcare systems, machine learning programs that can be improved with human feedback, the role of automated decision-making in our justice system, the ethical implications of AI in fields such as defence and medicine, and more. As part of the exhibition, visitors will also be able to see some of the robots at King’s.
The work on display from King’s researchers and academics will celebrate the potential for integrating emerging technologies into our lives, while acknowledging that the need to develop systems that are safe, responsible and trusted, and informed by a diverse range of perspectives, has never been greater.
Accompanying the exhibition, the Institute will present a scheduled series of demonstrations and interactive exhibits during the two-month period, allowing researchers and visitors to explore AI in its various forms at King’s. The full schedule of demonstrations will be published here from late April 2023.
Supported by King’s Culture, Bringing the Human to the Artificial will be followed by a season at Science Gallery London, Guy’s Campus exploring AI and Ethics from June 2023 to January 2024.
